SSP member Tone took a photo from what I believe is Montreal's best angle; from the islands south-west of downtown.

All of the '5 sisters' (1000, 1250, PVM, CIBC, Stock exchange) are visible and so are many of the pre-war skyscrapers.

Five Saskatchewan communities from my favourite angles, can you guess the names of each place?

I think I recognise the middle picture of the small Sask cities as Moose Jaw but the other two are more tricky (for me).

Pretty much a no-brainer for my city. Difficult to see it from any other angle

And if you turn your head 180 degrees you get a view of another city

I love how the newest additions to the skyline are so visible here. I actually quite like the CRCHUM from this angle and distance. It has an industrial look to it that complements the port area quite nicely. Too bad the cladding looks very cheap when you get up close.

Also, once the CHUM proper starts going up it should hide a good chunk of the HQ building from this angle, which can't be a bad thing.

It's amazing how dense North Van is, but not even one building over 90 meters! Beautiful nonetheless!

Saint John really looks like it's New Brunswick's largest city.

Agreed - but that makes sense. It grew at a time when we constructed dense, urban communities.

Moncton may have a significantly higher population today, but most of that growth happened when we preferred to build sparse, suburban communities. So, when you're standing downtown, those extra tens of thousands of residents aren't visible at all.

In my opinion, suburbs are basically lost population numbers.

Moncton is not significantly larger at all. The metro and urban populations are virtually equal, Monctons being slightly higher by a few thousand.

True, thanks to Saint John's Uptown, which is the capture of the above image.

Moncton is growing larger in population, but it's a city of sprawl. The downtown is burdened with surface parking lots, with an appearance that reminds me of a typical American suburb.

Really? Oh, sorry! My mistake.

I find it interesting to learn of other communities in Canada,maybe even visit someday, thought i'd send out some pics from my area & introduce some towns to forumers
Thanks for playing name that Saskatchewan town!

..none of which are exciting enough to ever be entitled to the name of city of bagels
